Discolored areas on new black powder coat flares

I had a highly recommended local shop install Poison Spyder fender flares for me on my 2015 black unlimited. They provided the parts and used their usual powder coating shop. The install looks great but the next day I noticed some patches of discoloration on two of the fender flares. At the time I picked it up Friday, I just thought it was residue left from dirt in the shop or maybe water sitting on them. But after a couple attempts at washing it off, I'm pretty sure they are flaws in the powder coat.

My question is, can this be corrected without pulling the flares off and refinishing them? Any products that can be sprayed on to hide it?

I'm going back to the 4x4 shop tomorrow and get them to look at it, but thought I would ask here also.

Sorry, couldn't figure out how to rotate the picture.

The recommendation for matte finishes on Harleys is Windex. Maybe give that a try.

But if it's a flaw in the finish you should let the vendor correct their work.
